Seasons in Transition

Things sure can change fast when the weather goes from below normal temperatures to way above normal!That's just what happened this past week. With temperatures soaring into the high 20's,the salmon started backing down the river in a hurry,while the sea-trout started their annual journey up river. The large salmon still left in the upper regions of the river are getting VERY fussy about what they are hitting,but the up-side to all this is the really nice trout being caught. The large sea-trout are just passing through the Blackville area and will slowly make their way up river over the next few weeks. As the spring salmon fishing slowly fades for another year,we are out in the bush placing our bear baits as the bruins start to roam about and eat a bit. We have our eye on a couple that are way over 300lbs. and we are hoping some of our sports are lucky enough to take at least one of these monsters! We will be giving updates on a regular basis,so keep posted. With the trout fishing coming on fast and the bear hunting just around the corner,we are going to be busy for the next few weeks. The photo I've posted is one of Billie Fairley of Boistown landing a grilse at Bighole Brook.Billie has fished the Miramichi and Nashwaak rivers all his life and is a darned good fisherman! Just don't tell him I said that!
